Central Luzon State University now running under geothermal power


First Gen Energy Solutions Inc. and the Central Luzon State University (CLSU) have signed a retail supply contract for 2.9 megawatts of green energy from the Energy Development Corp. (EDC)

The largest state university in Region 3, which stands on 658 hectares of land, started receiving power from EDC’s geothermal station in Bicol on June 26, 2016.

“The entire CLSU campus will benefit from environment-friendly power all year round and not rely on imported and carbon-emitting fossil fuel energy sources or stopgap supply measures that could not guarantee reliable and uninterruptible power,” EDC Vice President for Corporate Affairs Ricky Carandang said.

“In addition, we are committed to provide CLSU with customized energy solutions, fair pricing, competent technical assistance, and responsive customer support at all times,” he said.

The Energy Development Corp. is the country’s leading geothermal energy producer with a total installed capacity of 1, 169 MW.
